Clos de la Chapelle, Corton ''Bressandes'' Grand Cru Imperial, 2016

“In contrast to the wood regimen of all of the prior wines, this is the only one where I would not describe it as subtle, indeed it fights somewhat with the otherwise well-layered, ripe and fresh aromas of red cherry, earth and underbrush. There is excellent size, weight and richness to the broad-shouldered flavors that, like the Taillepieds, are lush and opulent yet the supporting tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finish again makes it clear that this will need a long snooze in a cool cellar. Note that there is such good underlying material that I am not concerned about the oak ultimately successfully integrating.”
